  1. Wash King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes – one large or medium potato will make about five or six wedges.

  2. Leaving the skins on, cut each potato in half, lengthways, then cut into two or three wedges per half, again cutting lengthways.

  3. Don’t cut them too thick as they won’t cook through, but also don’t make them too thin or they will just burn.

  4. Put the wedges in a food bag with a slosh of olive oil and shake so they are all well coated.

  5. Place the oiled wedges in a baking tin and bake in a pre-heated oven at gas mark 6 (or 200ºC or 400ºF) and bake for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally and making sure they’re all well cooked through.

  6. If you want your wedges to be more tangy, either add just a splash of chilli oil along with the other oil when tossing the wedges at the start, or sprinkle with paprika or tangy grated parmesan cheese when the wedges have about 10 minutes more to cook.

Sounds tasty! Sweet potato wedges are also good and cook in half the time. We like them with chilli oil.

you can add any dried herb or spice, I use garlic and chilli combined and other times the bbq flavouring delicious

I make wedges and sweet potato wedges with lemon oil or chilli oil. Very good and the sweet ones don't take much more than 20 minutes in a hot oven. Never heat food in plastic as the chemicals from the plastic can enter the food and thus you. Similarly only buy oils that are cold pressed in glass bottles as the heat from other methods can generate carcinogens and oils easily absorb chemicals.

Do you leave the wedges in the bag while they cook or is it only used to mix the oil over them? Good recipe will try it out very soon

Going to give these a try, they sound delicious. i have tried chips with cheese before after a friend from down south told me it was her favourite thing from the chip shop. It sounded a strange mix but tasted really good. I think i ll try adding a bit of chilli and spicing them up.
